Living the good life – defining ‘living standards’

15 Sep 2013
Description

This working paper is intended to be a non-exhaustive and brief look at how we define living standards in New Zealand and abroad. Most if not all people would agree that improving living standards is one of government’s most important roles. However, things get a little muddier when we consider the question of what exactly a high standard of living constitutes.
